Hamilton Canucks[edit | edit source]

AHL affiliate based in Hamilton, Ontario and whose home arena was Copps Coliseum. This was the team's second and final season as an affiliate of the Canucks. In the 1993–94 AHL season, Hamilton finished in 2nd place in the South Division, but was eliminated in the first round of the AHL playoffs by the Cornwall Aces in four straight games. After the season, the franchise was relocated as the Syracuse Crunch, which kept its affiliation with Vancouver.
